Kohler's New Smart Toilet Could Change Your Butt's Life

Indoor plumbing is one of the great joys of modern living. For most, it’s enough. For others, having a toilet that can respond to voice commands, heat your rear, and perform other “smart” functions is a new kind of paradise.

Kohler has listened. As The Verge reports, the plumbing fixture company is making a splash at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) by unveiling the Numi 2.0 Intelligent Toilet, a commode looking to earn a reputation as the iPhone of waste disposal.

The luxury throne comes with ambient lightning and built-in surround sound speakers, both of which can be activated using your voice via the Amazon Alexa interface. Kohler is not quite clear on what kind of ambiance users may prefer for bodily functions, but for some, having a soundtrack to their voids may be preferable to whatever sounds are coming from their bodies.

The toilet also features what Kohler is calling a PureWarmth option, which raises the temperature of the seat for maximum rear end comfort. The company also describes personalized “cleansing and dryer functions,” which likely means a bidet feature.

If this experience isn’t enough, the Numi will act in concert with Kohler’s entire line of voice-activated bathroom fixtures, including a Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror that features a motion-activated nightlight function and a smart tub that will pre-fill itself to a desired depth and temperature.

The smart mirror starts at $1249. The tub is $4849. The toilet, clearly the crown jewel of the collection, will retail for $7000. A release date has yet to be announced.
